Summary

When her sister disappears, can Ellen Ryan keep her beloved niece safe? For the inhabitants of Liverpool's Milton Street a steady income and a roof over their heads are luxuries.

They're forced to turn to Conor, Jack's brother from Ireland, a man whose noisy joviality 17-year-old Ellen Ryan suspects hides a mean viciousness.

She's right, and with her mother sick and her half-sister, Annie, becoming increasingly feckless; it's down to Ellen to fight Conor's tyranny.

A great saga from Lyn Andrews

Another lovely story from this author but not the happiest of reads. The narrator was a bit annoying with accents at times but not awful.
